RUHR LECTURE: The Future of the Ruhr Region: Beyond 2018 and the End of Mining

17:00 20:00

University of Duisburg-Essen - Campus Essen Glaspavillon - R12 S00 H12

This year the RUHR LECTURE is organized in cooperation with the RAG-Stiftung and is dedicated to the Future of the Ruhr Region. The series showcases the broad range of disciplines involved in metropolitan research in the University Alliance Ruhr (UAR): Researchers from all three universities as well as experts from various disciplines give insights into their current work. While the main focus lies on the Ruhr Region, experiences from other metropolitan regions are included in a comparative approach. Since 2013, the RUHR LECTURE has been organized by the Institute of Geography at Ruhr-University Bochum and the Faculty of Spatial Planning at TU Dortmund University. In 2016, they were joined by the Joint Center “Urban Systems” at the University of Duisburg-Essen. Since the winter term 2016/17, the RUHR LECTURE has been organized by the Competence Field “Metropolitan Research” of the UAR.

The series is part of the activities of the Network Ruhr (Urban and Regional Research Network Ruhr, www.surf-ruhr.de).
